A group of 5 of us planned for this 2d1n break. We almost had to cancel it at the last minute due to a medical reason. The spa was understanding enough to offer to waive the charges despite being less than 72 hours. However, things got better and we went ahead as planned.
We were greeted at the ferry terminal by Mr Jwanda who brought us to the villa. Jwanda's service was tip top! He helped sort out some issues at immigration and arranged for value for money transport service around the island. Basically, he was the solution to many of our problems! :)
At the villa, which is very private (considering is has 9 rooms), we were briefed through by Jasmine who was very thorough and friendly. She took care of our spa schedule, meal orders and timings, ferry confirmation etc. Although we were put up at the seabreeze room, which was about 5-7 mins drive from the main villa, we never felt neglected. Transport was arranged to shuttle as to and from the apartment and main villa.
As there were 5 of us, we were placed in the 3 bedroom apartment, located at Indah Puri Golf Course. Nicely furnished, clean beddings and furniture. I would recommend this apartment if you are in big groups.
The view was nice, overlooking the golf course and the sea. You can use the facilities like the pool. But I recommend bringing extra snacks as food is hard to find after dark (unless you wanna book a taxi out).
Separately, I took a walk around the villa and was very impressed with the layout. I told myself that I will check into one of the rooms soon!
My 3 hour spa session was fantastic. My therapist, Aisyah, treated me to a relaxing 3 hour session, beginning with the Thai Massage, followed by the herbal hot compress and ending up with a body scrub. Had my treatment in one of the naturally ventilated rooms which was super relaxing until the 3 aunties in the next room ended their treatment and started to gossip.
Nonetheless, I will try their 6 hour package soon....
Overall, the experience was fantastic... and will definitely recommend this jewel of a place!
